PAR 3

Golf Injury Prevention

Golf can be relaxing, frustrating and exhilarating, but the one thing it should never be is painful. However, when you look at the motion of a golf swing it puts the body in positions it should never be allowed to be in.

So, how do you play golf and prevent chronic injuries such as low back and shoulder pain and improve your performance by hitting the ball farther?

Sign up for PAR 3 at the Orthopaedic Fitness Center. Each member receives a movement screening looking at joint stability and mobility. The results from the screening will show areas where your golf swing is being effected, thereby making your swing mechanics ineffective.

A Titleist Performance Institute Certified Specialist will examine your results and work with you through one-on-one training sessions to correct your areas of weakness and instability.

Then your specialist will work with you on training and conditioning to help you build muscles and use them effectively in your swing so you perform better on the course.

PAR 3 packages start as low as $50. For more information, call the Orthopaedic Fitness Center at 322-4540 or e-mail Jasper Richardson at jasper.richardson@vanderbilt.edu.
